Fenerbahce have reached an agreement with Queens Park Rangers forward Bright Osayi-Samuel to join them in the summer.
That’s according to A Spor, who say the Turkish club are now negotiating with QPR to make the transfer happen this month.
Osayi-Samuel is out of contract at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium this summer and, as such, is free to negotiate with clubs around Europe about a free transfer this month.
He’s been heavily linked with a switch to Turkey, with Fenerbahce keen on his signature as they look to strengthen their forward line.
A Spor now report that they have agreed a four-year deal with the QPR forward for the summer and are negotiating with the Championship side to move the transfer forward to this month.
This latter information is backed up by Hurriyet, who say it is a difference in valuation that is causing the transfer to be held up.
They explain that Fener’s ‘first plan’ is to bring Osayi-Samuel’s move forward this month and pay a ‘testimonial’ fee to QPR.
Rangers ‘opened the door’ at £750,000, but Fenerbahce don’t want to go anywhere near that and offered £400,000, a price QPR would not go down to.
That is where the negotiations currently are, and if no agreement can be found with the Championship side, Fener have a Plan B in the shape of Sevilla’s Oussama Idrissi.
They already have an agreement in place with the Spanish side and if there is no result from the final meeting with QPR, the Moroccan star will move to Istanbul instead.
